My 1st RC since the 80s will be (on its way) a 2WD Slash. It will really be for my 7 y/o son.
So now, I am deciding which Traxxas model to get to run with him. I am mostly leaning towards a Stampede 4x4 (not sure XL5 or VXL), but I am wondering if you could offer some advice on what else I might get.
Will I need 4WD for backyard fun?
Will I be okay with brushed/nimh or will I need brushless lipo, even if I have no interest in racing?
Will I be able to enjoy a 1/16 on the same grassy (not tall grass) terrain on which my son runs the Slash?
What other Traxxas vehicles would you suggest, and why? Thanks!
